In February Mr. Sean “Diddy” Combs hinted that he will be hitting the small screen with some heavy hitters for a new comedy, and now the details have finally been announced.
Variety reports that the hip-hop renaissance man will star alongside Superbad actor Jonah Hill and UK comedian Russell Brand in the Judd Apatow produced movie Get Him To The Greek. The flick, which will be written and directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), centers around an intern who has two days to bring a rockstar to Hollywood to play a concert.

Mad Men’s Elizabeth Moss and Rose Bryne (28 Weeks Later) will also appear in the comedy.
